Blood still shines brightly
Where the car has struck the poor
Possum on the road

One less God's creature
Because Man was so careless
Just outside The Host

One less mouth to feed
Her babies are still waiting
The Circle of Life

Averted my gaze
Not because Death is ugly
I had just eaten

Sleep now little one
Your life did have some meaning
Now I treasure mine

Big feast for the crows
A special delicacy
Eyeballs always first

Rain washes away
All her joy and her sadness
Not my memory

Dead things on the road
Once were living their lives free
Just like you and me
